To build a healthy, sustainable community, we have and will provide services to the local businesses, charities and people. These will serve them to better understand each other and enable everyone involved to build mutually beneficial, long-term partnerships.
A BID is an organisation established and run by local businesses to improve the commercial conditions of the defined area. It is funded through a levy on business rates, introduced via a ballot for which a majority of eligible businesses (by number and rateable value) must vote in favour. If the ballot is successful the BID term is usually 5 years during which time an agreed set of services are delivered towards the collective objectives of the BID members.
Vauxhall One enhances the cleaning services provided by the council with regular street cleaning, litter picking and recycling.
We are reducing street crime and antisocial behaviour by becoming one of the first BIDs in the UK to build on the Met Police’s S92 Police Officer scheme. The S92 agreement, sees Vauxhall One pay for the cost of one police officer with the Met matching that funding for an additional officer, this means that Vauxhall now has two additonal full time police officers dedicated to Vauxhall.
